Dr. David Rabin, the inventor of the Apollo Neuro, joins the show to talk about how stress affects out body and why it is so important to improve our HRV (heart rate variability). He also goes over why trying to combat stress can actually create more stress, and how using the power of frequencies and sound therapy can reduce the negative health impacts of stress. David’s Apollo Neuro device is one of my absolute favorite wearables, because it uses these principles to help your body find a state of calm, and is scientifically proven to increase your HRV. The Apollo Neuro also tones and improves vagus nerve function which is essential in reducing the impact of stress. So many great topics covered in today’s podcast. Definitely don’t want to miss this one if you’re looking for an easy and effective solution for reducing your stress levels!

About Dr. David Rabin
Dr. David Rabin, MD, PhD, is a neuroscientist, board-certified psychiatrist, health tech entrepreneur & inventor who has been studying the impact of chronic stress in humans for more than a decade. He is the co-founder & chief innovation officer at Apollo Neuroscience, which has developed the first scientifically-validated wearable technology that actively improves energy, focus & relaxation, using a novel touch therapy that signals safety to the brain.
Dr. Dave has always been fascinated by consciousness and our inherent ability to heal ourselves from injury and illness. As such, he has specifically focused his research on the clinical translation of non-invasive therapies for patients with treatment-resistant illnesses like PTSD and substance use disorders.
Dr. Rabin is the co-founder and executive director of the Board of Medicine, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of physicians and scientists establishing the first peer-reviewed, evidence-based clinical guidelines for the production and safe use of currently unregulated alternative medicines, including plant medicines. The Board of Medicine trains and certifies healthcare providers, and provides quality control standards for complementary and alternative medicines to support high-quality clinical research, best practices, and risk-reduction.
In addition to his clinical psychiatry practice, Dr. Dave is currently conducting research on the epigenetic regulation of trauma responses and recovery to elucidate the mechanism of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and the neurobiology of belief.
Dr. Rabin received his MD in medicine and PhD in neuroscience from Albany Medical College and specialized in psychiatry with a distinction in research at Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
He has been married to his co-founder, Kathryn Fantauzzi, since 2016.
Special 15% Off of Apollo for Myers Detox Podcast Listeners!
Developed by physicians and neuroscientists, Apollo is a wearable wellness device that uses gentle vibrations to help your body recover from stress. Apollo’s scientifically proven technology improves heart rate variability (HRV), a key biometric of stress, so you can feel more calm, balanced, and perform at your best.
Chronic stress triggers the sympathetic “fight-or-flight” branch of our nervous system and impairs our ability to recover. Through your natural response to touch, Apollo activates your parasympathetic “rest and digest” response and restores balance.
Apollo does not track your biometrics – it actively improves them. Trials in both the lab and the real world repeatedly show that Apollo improves the body’s resilience to stress and HRV in just minutes.
